You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Psalm 31:4


4 Pull me out [yatsa'] of the net [resheth] that [zuw] they have laid privily [taman] for me: for thou art my strength [ma`owz].  KJV-Interlinear


4 Thou wilt pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me; For Thou art my strength.  NASB


The net refers to the many snares and traps of the world, that are laid out in order to entrap you and lead you away from truth and Gods plan for your life. Most people are trapped by means of their own unresponsiveness to what God expects. Perhaps this applies to you. God mandates that you study daily, that you confess regularly, that you live within the spiritual environment that He has designed. Most do not even make an effort to do that.

They, is an ambiguous term that refers to all that is in opposition to God. It could refer to people, to politics, to social standards, to religious beliefs, to philosophies, to beliefs in general, to temptations or enticements, or to things or attitudes.

The word for privily, ‘taman,’ means covering, hidden, secretly. The traps and nets of the world are laid privately, secretly, deceitfully, camouflaged, under concealment. And therefore they are presented as reasonable or natural, but have hidden agendas, which is to entrap and to destroy your life and you.

But there is a defense against these traps of the world, and that defense is bible doctrine.

Strength, ‘maowz,’ refers to a fortified place, a defense, a rock, a stronghold.

God does not reach down out of heaven and grab you by the collar. He does not transport you into a fort constructed of stone and steel. But He does provide the one and only source of true strength, which is bible doctrine. But you have to learn it in order to possess it, and, make it serve you.
